Probably the weirdest use for this.
Ok, this may sound very weird, but I used this on my underarms. I, and a lot of other people, have dark underarms, and I thought maybe an acne wash would detoxify the skin and a scrub would exfoliate it, since it's not an area I think to exfoliate. It definitely worked. I used the scrub before I shaved with normal shaving cream. Within a week I noticed my underarms were softer, the color was a lot more like the rest of my skin, and I even noticed less odor.
Not for sensitive or dry skin!
I have used this product in the past and it worked very well. I recently started using it again and I did not get the same outcome. It makes my skin very dry. Other then that, it does not do much for my skin. I know people who use it and it turns out nice for them. It's just not for me :)
Don't follow directions to much..
I have had this exact product in my bathroom for awhile now.. I did as the directions say to do (Use twice daily) as in for a face wash. This is a really good product for the price of it, but I WOULD NOT use it twice a day! It's a micro-exfoliant so you need to only use it a few times a week. that probably explains why everyone is having problems with their skin drying out, flaking, or getting irritated. to much exfoliating can cause that. So best to use this as an exfoliator.. not a face wash. Hope this helps! :)
I used to use this daily and it worked really well for a while. It's really exfoliating and does its job, but then it started really drying out and irritating my skin causing it to constantly be red and flaky. I find that it works best if used every few days and alternated with another gentler product.
My skin loves this!
I love anything with salicylic acid (addict haha) and this is perfect. If I am having an active breakout I don't use it because that can further irritate acne at that point, but other than that it never fails. I love it!
Love the Texture
Let me first start by saying that I have dry skin. So washing with an acne product only makes my face even more dry. But I do get the occasional breakout. I love the texture of this, it exfoliates while it cleanses. But the so-called "grapefruit" smell doesn't really smell like grapefruit to me. It does seem to work, but I can't get past the weird smell.
Every skin cleanser works differently on different skin but for my oily, acne prone skin it helped for a short period of time, but the fragrance made my skin irritated and after about three weeks of use my skin got used to it and it no longer prevented/treated my acne. I'd recommend this for acne on other places than the face but not an everyday face cleanser.
I don't feel like it helped my skin at all. It just didn't do anything. It didn't clear up my acne. It wasn't even a good exfoliator. I ended up just using it on my body. It really just seemed to dry my skin out.... =/
oh hell no.
this was a no no no no to the max! i tried this at first and it worked amazingly. i stopped using it for awhile, and i read somewhere that once you stop using this and start up again it makes your skin worse, well, that happened to me! my skin broke out so much more and became oilier. i used the leftover of this as a body scrub for my back acne and that worked so much better!
Not For Sensitive Skin!
I have very sensitive acne prone skin and after a while this product (the foam version) made me break out even more. :( My skin is very red, dry, and tight after I use this. I wanted to like this but it was just too harsh on my skin, though the smell is amazing!
